The Herbal Highway is a weekly radio show dedicated to providing free herbal information to the public. This program offers voices and perspectives not always present in mainstream discussions of health and maintains an ecological perspective of using plants in a sustainable way. The Herbal Highway has been airing live since 1996, and was Karyn Sander’s vision, which she now maintains through the support of Sarah Holmes who also hosts the show. Sarah has been a guest host since the early years of the show and began hosting on a regular basis in 2006. Both Karyn and Sarah volunteer their time to produce and host the program.


About the Hosts:

Karyn Sanders is a clinical herbalist in private practice and a teacher. Her training started as a child and she has been working with plants most of her life. Karyn teaches across the US as well as running her own school for many years.

Sarah Holmes is also a clinical herbalist in private practice and a teacher at her own school as well as other venues.


In 2003 Karyn and Sarah founded the Blue Otter School of Herbal Medicine. Their school is dedicated to passing on an indigenous understanding of how energy and light flow through the body to create our balance and look to the plants to facilitate this process. They focus on sustainable use of plants, social justice issues of health and a deeper connection to nature.
